Over the weekend, a 61-year-old woman awoke to two suspects, unloaded her gun on them, and plans to buy “another gun” in case such an incident occurs again.
The woman lives in the vicinity of Terrell, Texas, but wishes to remain unidentified for her own security.
According to CBS DFW, the woman grabbed her gun when she heard the suspects in her home. Upon seeing them, she opened fire, shooting one in the stomach but emptying every bullet in her gun without hitting the second suspect.
She surmises that the suspects heard her gun as it began to “click” and realized she was out of rounds. At that point, the uninjured suspect allegedly began to beat her, leaving the woman with “a concussion and her face was covered with cuts and bruises.”
The woman called police after the suspects fled and the injured one — 21-year-old Saul Guzman — was quickly captured at Texas Regional Medical Center in Sunnyvale, seeking treatment for his gunshot wound. The second suspect — 21-year-old Pedro Guzman — was captured sitting in his car at a gas station across the street from the medical center.
The woman said she plans to install a security system so she can know if someone is in her house as soon as they enter. She also said she plans to buy “another gun.” She urged other woman to do the same, saying, “I hope other women will take note. I am glad I was able to defend myself.”
